HKU x JCAFC Wong Tai Sin Elderly Photography Exhibition — Exhibition Design
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and Hong Kong University have taken a proactive role in tackling the challenges of our ageing population, and stipulated building Hong Kong into an age-friendly city as one of the overarching strategic themes. In line with the Trust’s Elderly Strategy, the Trust has adopted a bottom-up and district-based approach to address the issues of an ageing population, and initiated the “Jockey Club Age-friendly City” project.
This photography exhibition is for the elders, who participated in the photography workshop that was held by the Jockey Club Age-friendly City organisation. The workshop taught the elderly how to use smartphones or digital cameras to photoshoot. It's my honour to help them create a photography exhibition to showcase their masterpieces.
The exhibition photos were taken by the elderly in daily life to express their perspective on society, and reflect the things that they cared about through the cameras. In terms of finding the connection and balance between the elders and modern society, I decided to use old Hong Kong as the exhibition theme. The elders have grown up witnessing the changes in society first hand, from past to present. The theme could bring back memories from their good old days, while simultaneously introducing historic Hong Kong to the visitors.
